How Can I Check the Oil in My Honda?

Why Change Your Oil?

Our team here at Pohanka Honda wants to remind you that one of the best things that you can do to contribute to your vehicle’s longevity and health is remember to frequently change its oil. However, we can understand why people might be wary of wasting money by coming in too often. If you want to be precise with your visits, you can easily check the oil levels on your own!

Oil Changes

First and foremost, we want to take a moment to speak to the positive impact oil has on your vehicle’s performance. Your engine is a network of moving parts, many of which make contact with one another. Pistons pump, gears shift, and so on. Without oil, they don’t have the lubrication they need to work harmoniously. Instead, they could cause damage to one another. In addition to this, oil helps filter grime away from important components and assists in regulating temperature. It’s truly the lifeblood of your powertrain! Therefore, you want to make sure that you don’t neglect replacing yours when the time comes.

Checking Your Oil

Luckily, you don’t need to come to Pohanka Honda just to have your oil levels checked. Doing so at home is a quick and easy process. All you have to do is park your vehicle on a level surface. With your engine off, pop the hood and locate the dipstick, which should protrude from a tube. Remove it from its place, wipe it off with a rag, and place it back in. Pull it out once more, but this time pay attention to the oil on it. Most sticks have clearly marked Full/Empty markers to help you see just how much oil you have left. We’d also suggest paying attention to the color and looking for any unusual flakes or spots. If yours is running low, it’ll be time to schedule an appointment with us!

Service

Once you’ve successfully diagnosed your oil levels, it’ll be time to join us at Pohanka Honda! Our service bay is open seven days of the week during convenient hours, and you’re never required to make an appointment before joining us. Just drive up and one of our technicians will come out to see what service you need to have performed. After that, you can go relax in our lounge area while they get to work adding some fresh oil to your engine. Since we have your model with us, we’ll take a look at other areas of your vehicle just in case there’s another important maintenance it needs. It’ll just be a few minutes before you can get back on the road.

If you’ve been wondering, “How can I check the oil in my Honda?”, then we hope that we’ve satisfied your curiosity! For any other questions, get in contact with our Service Department at Pohanka Honda!

Initially , I was livid when coming to get my vehicle serviced to get my vehicle serviced for a new rim & tire . I got the most terrible customer service from the representative Don , he had no interest in helping me and was not knowledgable about transportation for me to get to the rental company nearby, ( called myself got in touch within seconds) unclear communication between him and the parts service manager. I was completely disgruntled until returning the following day with my father, we were fortunate to get to interact with Horace who literally saved the day and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty and actually observed what was going on with my vehicle , and made me aware that another tire was going ball (no he didn't up sell me ,because I already knew I needed them replaced being that my mechanic let me know the last time I went for routine maintenance) I literally just wanted to work with someone with simple emotional intelligence & that could assist me swiftly. Horace was the guy. He kept in contact with me the entire time my vehicle was being serviced and kept me posted with any updates up until my car was ready. I'm truly satisfied & happy my warranty covered one of my tires and I was able to replace the other, at little to no cost.

They're really enthusiastic about selling their electric cars! They have a special program for low income customers and will work with you to get you in one. Good deal for $30,000 if you can afford it! Good luck!

My overall experience was very good. Gabrielle Willis was our sales consultant, we started with email communication, and she impressed me as being very friendly, always responsive and eager to work things out, and we reached an initial agreement quickly via email. Gabby picked me up at the metro station, and she was very pleasant to interact with. In addition, Gabbi was very patient, knowledgeable and informative, and she explained things in detail, answered all of my questions. Gabbi followed up afterwards with an email to make sure that I was satisfied, and to see if I had any additional questions. Gabbi did an excellent job with her customers, and I would recommend her to anyone.

I went to this dealership 22Sept2019 to get 4-wheel alignment for our car. As soon as I got there, Ms. Sarah Carpenter, our service advisor came and approached us with cordiality. When it comes to her job, I would describe her as hospitable and professional.
